Christmas is all about the supernatural, you know. It’s about guiding stars, mystic prophesies, and virgin birth. At Christmas we gaze beyond the limitations of our earthly existence to a Power that supersedes mere natural law. Christmas reminds us that nothing is impossible with God; that any dream can materialize, any wish can come true, and that the unlikely becomes likely through faith in the Divine.
But Christmas is about mercy, also. It’s about people, nations, even a lost world, receiving a second chance.
And yes, Christmas is about presents, too; or at least, a Present. It’s about God so loving us that He gave, about the unworthy receiving help; about Ebenezer Scrooge, George Bailey, and Scarlet Ribbons.
Do you need a help? Do you need mercy? Do you need a miracle? Then Christmas is for you. For at this time of year, more than at any other, we re reminded that He is looking down upon us with wonder-working love.
